Seminar | August 8 | 1:30-2:30 p.m. | 775 Tan Hall

 Professor Himanshu Mishra, Biological and Environmental Science and Engineering Division, King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST)

 College of Chemistry

Numerous reports on dramatically accelerated organic reactions in aqueous electrosprays1-6 and emulsions7-8 have appeared in the last decade. While the causative role of “interfaces” has been invoked, rigorous mechanistic insights remain elusive. Specifically, it is unclear if the “interfacial effects” are limited to dangling hydrogen bonds, interfacial tensions, and curvature effects, or...   More >

Given the close links among our health, the foods we grow, how we grow them, and how we process and distribute them, it is surprising how little collaboration there is between medicine and agriculture. This needs to change to prevent chronic diseases such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease and cancer; build health equity; offer nutrient-dense food to a growing population; and protect and restore...   More >

Bulk-heterojunction polymer solar cells (PSCs) are composed of a blend active layer of a p-type conjugated polymer as donor and an n-type semiconductor as acceptor sandwiched between an anode and a cathode where at least one of the two electrodes should be transparent. Over the last decade soluble fullerene derivatives (PC60BM,PC70BM,ICBA) were the only choice of n-type semiconductors for PSCs...   More >
